One of my all-time favorite dishes that my mom used to make was called "Potted Beef". She'd take a bottom round roast, cut it up into chunks (like for stew), put it in a big pot with onion, garlic, onion soup mix, and enough water to cover it and let it all just stew on a low heat until it was cooked through. I think then she just added a can or two of cream of mushroom soup and serve it with mashed potatoes and green beans. It was so simple and yet was such a nice meal for a cool fall day or even better on a freezing, snowy winter day! I just picked up a couple nice pieces of some kind of beef so I think my boyfriend and I will be having that one night soon!

BEEF STIR FRY
1 pound boneless beef sirloin or beef top round steaks sliced into thin strips - I find doing this when the meat is semi frozen is easiest 1 tablespoon and 1-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch 1/2 of a (10.5 ounce) can beef broth 1/4 cup soy sauce 1 tablespoon sugar 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 2 cups mushrooms sliced 1/2 head Chinese cabbage (bok choy), thinly sliced or regular cabbage 1 red pepper, cut into long strips 1 green pepper, cut into long strips 2 stalks celery, sliced 1 onion sliced Hot cooked brown rice
Mix cornstarch, broth, soy and sugar until smooth. Set aside.
Heat 1/2 tablespoon oil in large fry pan or wok over high heat. Add beef and stir-fry until browned. Set beef aside.
Add 1/2 tablespoon oil. Add the mushrooms, cabbage, peppers, celery and onions in and stir-fry over medium heat until tender-crisp. Set vegetables aside.
Stir cornstarch mixture and cook until mixture boils and thickens, stirring constantly.
Return beef and vegetables to pan and heat through. Serve over rice.
** you can change this up and add whatever kind of vegetables you like **
I come from a family that raises its own beef. So we have a freezer full of beef to eat. I never buy any beef from the store. Our beef is very lean. I would like healthy beef recipes. It just seems that all healthy cookbooks have only chicken, turkey, or fish. But this does not fit my lifestyle. Having our own meat has saved us money and so I never buy chicken, turkey, or fish. Any suggestions on a good cookbook for health beef recipes? Or if anybody has any?
